Texas is nice this time of year, but I agree summer through late fall is pretty brutal.
not really independent arms... its a triangulated shock displacement type thing a majig... hahaha... i am so not a technical person...

i have an outboard cantilever system on my truck now with a Tundra rear axle... it allows me to keep my bed...

i just need to photograph my rear...

Just google cantilever suspension and you will get tons of different versions. Lots of bagged/slammed trucks use it too. You can typically get more travel out of less space.

Raptors only pull 11" right? You should be able to do a solid mid travel all around and be good! Obviously gusset some shit but LT is top notch if you've got the funds!

All pro LT will require glass up front if you run a 32" or larger and tire and actually use the travel.

well you are in the right area on your budget of 10-15k, that will be more than enough if you just do a simple bed saver cage in the rear with the normal LT out back and just a normal kit up front.

True....so the internal bypass is the way to go! What's the likelyhood of fox or anyone developing an off the shelf one?
